England player ratings vs Wales: Who shone and who flopped at Twickenham?

England player ratings vs Wales: Who shone and who flopped at Twickenham?

5 Maro Itoje: Had an epic battle with his Lions roommate Alun Wyn Jones. Probably edged it. Brought great line-speed and defence to the England team right up until the final whistle. 8/10

4 Joe Launchbury: The second-row was on another level. Relentless at the breakdown, his work rate was simply phenomenal. The icing on the cake was his sublime offload for May’s second try. 9/10

3 Dan Cole: Give his everything but eventually ran out of steam. 6.5/10

2 Dylan Hartley: A stupid no armed tackle saw Hartley withdrawn for an HIA within 40 seconds. Came back around the 10th minute but was gone by the 50th. 6/10

1 Mako Vunipola: You don’t often see a prop go for 76 minutes. Incredible effort. 7.5/10
